What Would Harriet Tubman Do? Buy the sneakers, grovel for reparations or free those still enslaved?

Slavery is a "freed" people contributing to the exploitation of the enslaved.

  • What would Harriet Tubman do?
  • Would she grovel for Reparation, knowing that neither money nor any form of recompense can free the African's mind?

  • Would she buy the sneakers...luxuriate in other products of slavery and exploitation?
  • Or, would she free the 35.5 million people enslaved in a Africa and around the world? ~Kwasi

Reparations are not just about financial compensation.  They are also about healing - i.e. repairing the damage.  Nobody can do this but ourselves.  Tubman once said she could have freed 1000 more people if they had realised they were enslaved.  I think she would have been fully behind the reparations movement. 

Also, we should never "grovel" for compensation.  We should demand it.  It is our right, just as freedom is our right.
